82. This Day at Thy Creating Word

1 This day at thy creating word
First o'er the earth the light was poured:
O Lord, this day upon us shine
And fill our souls with light divine.

2 This day the Lord for sinners slain
In might victorious rose again:
O Jesus, may be raised be
From death of sin to life in thee!

3 This day the Holy Spirit came
With fiery tongues of cloven flame:
O Spirit, fill our hearts this day
With grace to hear and grace to pray.

4 O day of light and life and grace,
From earthly toils sweet resting-place:
Thy hallowed hours, blest gift of love,
Give we again to God above.

5 All praise to God the Father be,
All praise, eternal Son, to thee,
Whom, with the Spirit, we adore
For ever and for evermore.

Amen.
